SOTT Earth Changes Summary – October 2015: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

For anyone in any doubt that our Planet is undergoing extensive changes… there seems to have been an immense amount of ‘record-breaking’ events occurring during recent months. I suspect they are bound to accelerate. As frightening as it may seem, please try to release your fears.

Thank you to dear Annette of the always informative AscendingStarseed blog for sharing this video and article with us.

Picture of the Day: The Supercell

I always love looking at the photographs posted on the incredible Twisted Sifter’s blog. The weather photographs, in particular, always pique my interest. This Ryan Shepard photograph, of a Supercell thunderstorm system over Ovid, Colarado last year, just takes my breath away. Incredible, just incredible.

In this dramatic capture by Ryan Shepard, we see a supercell thunderstorm never Ovid, Colorado on 28 May 2013.

A supercell is a thunderstorm that is characterized by the presence of a mesocyclone: a deep, persistently rotating updraft. Of the four classifications of thunderstorms (supercell, squall line, multi-cell, and single-cell), supercells are the least common and have the potential to be the most severe. Supercells are often isolated from other thunderstorms, and can dominate the local climate up to 32 kilometres (20 mi) away. [source]

Supercells can occur anywhere in the world under the right pre-existing weather conditions, but they are most common in the Great Plains of the United States in an area known as Tornado Alley and in the plains of Argentina, Uruguay and southern Brazil. [source]

Amazing Cloud Formation (Explored)


This incredible photograph was taken by Gary Brink (1/800, ƒ/9, ISO 200, 135 mm) on May 29, 2011, at the Holland State Park in Michigan, USA. The incredible cloud formation formed on Lake Michigan just off the beach.

In his Flickr description, Gary remarks:

“Was out at the State Park on Sunday evening and witnessed this beautiful cloud formation on the horizon. Wasn’t long after this a big dark cloud blanket moved in very quickly and covered this cloud. The dark cloud brought an instant 5 degree plus drop in temps and a brisk wind as well. It didn’t rain but what an amazing sight to see… just never know what you’re going to get when you go out to the lake and sometimes it’s gone in the blink of an eye as well so always…
